Some older binaries are available from ftp://elroy.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/ ...
Check the files MBONE.netbsd_sparc.tar.gz and MBONE.netbsd_sparc.CKSUM.
(These are about a year and a half old, btw.)
Current status: vic from 2.6 on compiles out of the box. Now there's the new
alpha releases of "vat" and friends; I haven't tried to compile these yet for
the simple reason that they require Tcl 7.4/Tk 4.0, and I've had problems
trying to get those to build on my NetBSD/SPARC 1.0 system. I've not had
time to look into it further, and have basically punted until such time as I
can get 1.1 or -current loaded on my work SPARCstation 2.
The "sd", "vat" and "wb" binaries in the above are the SunOS binaries,
slightly whacked to overcome an ioctl() problem in NetBSD 1.0 (which has since
been addressed by pk, so they don't need whacking anymore).

Not that I know of.
